And you know few people can do it. The majority is only users, and they're
happy for this, like me.
And they will be happier if they do not have the machines configuration
changed when installed a new program. And 90%, I think, don't know what to
do when it happens. Come on, Alan, we'd enough of M$ behaviour!

Last week I bought Harry Potter, a game, to my son, 7 years old. When I
realize he was playng the game. I ask him if he installed the game by
himself. His reply: "Daddy, you just put cd in the drive and press Enter
key 2 or 3 times and click in finished button" That's the way people
thinks, unhappily. But it is.
My english is very poor, you know it. But I want to learnig about
computers, I love them. So I subscribe the AbiWord list. Believe me, is
very hard to me writting in a language that's not mine and I don't
undestand completely. But I did just because I want to learn. And I
learned a lot here. But it's not typical.
That's what I think, a AbiWord user. Just a user.
Thank you for help and attention.
